A gentleman in Thousand Oaks, who had been one of Warhol's Factory group, collected Last Suppers of any kind, accumulating hundreds of versions, some made of sea shells, one of lint, others obscene, one using Richard Nixon and his henchmen as substitutes.

If you don't like what is on TV, turn the channel or turn it off and read a book.

If you don't approve of Wright tchotchkes, don't buy them.

This is called freedom of choice.

Not everyone is required to have the same "taste" or opinion.

You may not like the tchotchkes, but many of our favorite non-profit organizations, that sell them, derive a significant amount of income from them and that helps keep them financially viable organizations.

On a side note: I know for a fact that many members of this chat board do not support the FLWBC by paying their annual dues, in spite of the fact that the FLWBC does not sell tchotchkes.

Great, David.

As for tchotchkes, sometimes when I don't like something I fight against it, like higher taxes and child labor and war and, well, you know, all the things we don't like and think are harmful in some way. (That's how we got rid of slavery.)
So, my point is, sometimes it's not a matter of "changing the channel," but declaring what one believes in and following through on a moral "choice."
My belief is that these items degrade the image of Wright and his ethos. They taint the waters. They are a disservice to the cause.
It's like the Minneapolis Hospital that has a McDonalds inside it.

I have to laugh. I actually own the construction drawings to this house (or one like it). I thought it was VERY Wrightian at the time. So...I've grown a bit since being a user of Wright Chat these past several years. Knowledge is power.

Plant some vines, or burn some sage?

Pretty bad, but I have seen a vessel sink in an actual Usionian posted here. This place, (John's link) was probably not a bad MCM before the current owners "fixed it up"

We need to set up a system where each "Chatter" gets $1.00 each time an agent invokes "Wright-influenced" or "Wright-inspired."

I agree, egads, as originally built, it was probably a very nice, simple house. As gussied up, not so much. But it is still salvageable.
